Advances in Excel document generation for MV

I recently blogged and Introduction to NebulaXPlus. Today I present a slightly different approach to that introduction. Consider this an AD, but I believe it will help to explain what we’re now able to do.

Introducing NebulaXPlus

If you want to create sophisticated Excel workbooks with your Pick BASIC application, you may be using NebulaXLite. While a “lite” tool, it does satisfy most needs. If you want to do more we now have NebulaXPlus.

MV to the web – Part 2

This is part 2 in the “MV to the web” series. In the first part I described code changes needed to specific functions to separate out the UI from the rules. In this part I’ll describe a structure you can use for all program item/subroutines to organize your modularized functions.

MV to the web – Part 1

In 2008 I upgraded my Universe and Unidata PE Windows systems and made some notes here. Today I upgraded to Unidata v7.2.7 and Universe v11.1.1. Here are notes on these latest releases.

MV to/from RDBMS – Not as tough as it sounds

I’ve posted notes here on exchanges between the MVDBMS and Relational databases. I think anyone who needs to do this should be able to take the info here and run with it.

NebulaXLite Deactivating
